Under the surface of tech money and development, one SF landmark still remains intact and is well worth visiting for the Sweet Tooth. Located at Hyde and Union Street, Swensen’s Ice Cream has been scooping its own tasty brand Ice Cream since 1948. We first discovered this spot only recently. What I like is that it’s the original site where Earle Swensen established his parlor and famously lives up to its saying “Just like Dad used to Make” as it carries with it, as pictured below, the decadent, glamours feeling of the 1940s.
Swensen’s offers every flavor from Toasted Almond to Green Mint Chocolate Chip. But I would recommend the Green Tea Pictured below. The location is perfect for tourists ( if you happen to be one) as it’s one of many establishments along the iconic SF Cable Car line. Even if you’ve lived in SF for a while, you may not have heard of it, but it lives up to its reputation.
